Leadership Lecture Series

Christian Union faculty and exceptional guest speakers address students at weekly lectures on each campus. Select videos are below.

Scott Jones, a pastor and former Christian Union faculty member at Princeton, returned to the university and gave this outstanding talk at a Christian Union leadership lecture series event last spring. In this talk he takes a look at what it means to be distinctly Christian in the midst of one's vocational pursuit.

Ministry Fellow Christine Shin




How and when do you boast in weakness? The primary way in which God's power will be perfected in your weakness. Evangelize in weakness, so that Christ's power will be perfected in weakness. 

"How many of us ask God to show up in power so that we can look good? God does not grant you power for you to look good, He does it so others will see Jesus."
Christian Union Ministry Fellow Jon Yeager, speaking at the ministry's leadership lecture series at Harvard, gives a talk called "Stranger Stories at Harvard." He tackles the question, 'What does the Netflix original Stranger Things — a show that has captured the imagination of many students — have to do with the story of God?' His conclusion? Mystery and glory.
